You are warmly invited to attend the 1st workshop in the IMPC Workshop series 2024, which is titled:
‘Neurodegenerative consequences of genetic defects in taste and olfactory genes in IMPC mice’
and is taking place on
Thursday 21 March 2024 at
14:00-17:00 CET / 22:00-01:00 Seoul (KST) /18:30-21:30 Pune (IST)/at 16:00 CET/ 10:00 Eastern time.
While the IMPC has produced a few knockout alleles for genes encoding taste and olfactory receptors, specific phenotyping tests to assess sensorineural deficiencies in these pathways are currently not part of the IMPC pipeline. Fortunately, emerging technologies now enable identification and analysis of the pathophysiological consequences of genetic disruptions in these genes in mice. This Workshop will explore opportunities to use IMPC mutant mice to investigate genetic mechanisms of anosmia and dysgeusia and the broader implication on neurodegenerative disease and cognitive decline in humans.
